. fox news alert a surge in the polling puttings mitt romney on top in the race for the white house. "pew research poll"ing shows since the debate last week, mitt romney leaping ahead of president obama. what a swing that is, 49-45%. keep in mind that is likely voters too. you have to ask a few more questions to figure out whether you're registered voter or likely voter. likely voter polls are more accurate in the end. look who is back here. martha: hello, everybody. bill: celebrating columbus day. martha: i always do. thank goodness he discovered the country. good morning i'm martha maccallum. mitt romney ahead of the president but wiping out the double digit lead with women voters. you remember what that used to be. bill: republican nominee continues to press on this issue, that's the economy. >> can we afford four more years like the last four years? he wants another stimulus. how did that first one work out? and then, he wants to pick winners and losers among companies, or losers in his case and then, of course he wants to hire more government workers. look, all of these things

campaign and mitt romney is up by two points. a gallup poll out today has romney at 49%, president obama 47%. that is within the poll's margin of error so it is still tientially a tie. the two campaigns tangled today over the definition of one of the shortest words in the english language. the question is whether vice president biden misled the american people in the debate last night and whether he had misused the word "we." biden was responding to charges meat the state department turned uest requests for more security in libya before the terror attack last month that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans. whe's what the vice president said. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more eycurity again. and, by the way, at the time we were told exactly -- we said exactly what the intelligence eommunity told us that they knew. that was the assessment. >> pelley: the fight today was wer what he meant by "we." our campaign 2012 correspondents are on the story and we'll go first to jan crawford who gotten a earful from the romney campaign t
was interesting in this -- after the presidential debate, you saw on some polls the gender gap closeup when romney didn't talk about women at all and when they obsessed over it in the convention to me that was a sign that women like all other voters are really judging on the most important and central issue in this campaign, and that is the economy, when romney was more credible on that and gained with everyone including women. >> rose: chuck todd, will fact checkers tomorrow morning look at this and examine this and find out and suggest that somebody was either misleading or, quote, lying? >> i don't think there are any lies in there, my favorite part is when, you know, there is that one point where you have joe biden saying 97 percent of small businesses make $250,000 or less and paul ryan insisting 1 million businesses are affected by that and that is they are both rde but, right but want to use different numbers one wants to use raw data and the other percentage to make it look large and make themselves look right i want to point out on abortion, i thought what was amazing with that question a
polls that have been taken since the debate are looking a little bit better for romney so we color those sort of a pink. but ohio still looking good for the real estate, wisconsin looking good and even in some of these polls virginia is looking good for him storks what we have seen, at least at the moment in this snap hot is a little bit of a breakdown in what was before the debate a kind of steady success for the president and all of the ten or so battleground states. >> rose: so right now we are waiting right now now for the next debate to where the campaign is. >> we are wait gog the next debate but have early voting going on and that's why the this vice presidential debate matters, both democrats and republicans are working the base hard but if you have dispirited people they won't muscle it up and do the early vote, i think if biden injects some energy in the democrats that will help with the votes being cast right now in the important battle ground states. >> rose: i raised this question earlier do we expect to see more of the quote, moderate romney in this campaign? >> mark halper
there is a public poll today that is usually a pretty good poll that shows romney with a very large lead in florida, i don't think he has that but they need to find a way so that going into the last two weeks with i the debates they hope helping them more they have got one or two or three paths to get to 27 at this, they are not if you talk to honest republicans they are not overwhelmingly confident that, you know, for months they said we would rather be us than them, i don't think you heard too many honest republicans saying that now but he think they have a chance if the next debate goes well, on the other side, their strategy is, their premise is we have got to lead, the electorial college is still very much tilting toward them and that they believe that their ground game is vastly enter superior, and early voting and the mechanics of turning people out on voting day they think are significantly better and i think based on what i have been able to learn that is not a crazy position to have and they want to go back to doing what they have done so well and i think you will see subterranean messagi
was widely criticized. romney surged in the polls and he now holds a slight lead over the president. under pressure to turn it around mr. obama will have to defend his response to last month's attack in bengal-- benghazi which killed four americans including u.s. ambassador chris stevens. the administration is under increasing criticism for initially refusing to call the attacks terrorism. in an exchange with bob schieffer on face the nation senator lindsey graham a senior member of the senate arms services committee was harsh. >> i think they have been misleading us but it finally caught up. >> schieffer: that si a very serious charge that you've just leveled, senator graham. are you saying that the administration deliberately mislead the american people to make it look as if terrorism is-- is not as much of a threat as apparently it is? >> either they are misleading the american people or incredibly incompetent. they are very political when it comes to foreign policy. when something goes bad, they deny, they deceive and they delay. >> reporter: libya became an issue last week on the camp
